I am always seeing these tasty shredded cabbage salads at holiday pot-lucks. I just know they are loaded with fat, with all the crispy ramen noodles, and tons of sugary dressing. I was on the hunt for a healthier version and found this one. I used a 10oz bag of finely shredded cabbage. For the dressing, I followed it as is but used rice wine vinegar instead of red wine as it was what I had. I tried to make the dressing with less sugar, but it was too tart. I added in the amount of sugar suggested, but then only put half of it on the cabbage mixture to reduce the sugar dressing even further. I figured the other half could be added if really needed later. Although, this one definitely has less oil and sugar to begin with than other similar recipes. I used 1/4 cup each of sliced almonds and the sunflower seeds. Both were unsalted so I added a dash of sea salt and black pepper. I left out the raisins by choice and realized after the salad was done I had forgotten the green onions. It was fine. Also, I would definitely mix in dressing before serving if a crunchy salad is desired. It will completely wilt down within an hour. The recipe does not make a ton anyhow. Made as written I got 5, side dish servings, vs. the 8, at 144 calories each. ty

I liked this much better than a similar recipe that uses 1/2 cup vegetable oil. Really enjoy the simplicity too!

Brought this to a potluck and had numerous compliments and requests for the recipe. The only thing I changed was that I added some fresh carrot shavings to give it more color. I used standard dark raisins and it was great. I am looking forward to trying it with red grapes as others suggested.

Wow this is delish! I wanted to take a pic but do not know how to get it small enough to add it here. Don't be afraid to try this recipe. It is so much better than mayo based dressing. Thank you Sharon!
